Verdict

HAZEL HILL has had a cracking season already, winning the Foxhunters here last time out, and he simply looks a cut above these. As long as he's not over the top for the season, he should be winning this. The battle for second looks more open, with Virak looking the obvious option, but you can make cases for Cartyo Des Brosses, Path To Freedom and Master Baker as well. If there's any rain around, then Path To Freedom might be the one for the silver medal.
  1. Hazel Hill
  2. Path To Freedom
  3. Virak
